just because

...con atto e voce di spedito duce
ricomincio: 'Noi siamo usciti fuore
dal maggior corpo al ciel ch'e pura luce:
luce intellettual piena d'amore,
amor di vero ben pien di letizia,
letizia che trascende ogni dolzore...


... with act and voice of guide whose task is down,
resumed: 'We've left the largest body, and move
now in the heaven composed of light alone,
intellectual light full of love,
love of the true good, full of happiness,
happiness which goes beyond all sweetnesses...

Dante, Commedia, Paradiso cto 30.
